'The Town': Assessing the trailer for a film destined for the Toronto International Film Festival
If you've seen "Inception," you may well have seen the trailer for "The Town," a Boston crime thriller that contains echoes of "Gone" and whose bank heist snippets are creepily reminiscent of the opening of "The Dark Knight."
Affleck did a solid job with "Gone Baby Gone" so I am intrigued to see what he does with his second effort. But I have one major issue with the trailer, aside from the fact that it screams out for more Jon Hamm. The preview reveals a bit too much detail about the plot, particularly via the reveal that happens at around the 1:55 mark. That's a moment I might have preferred not to see before heading into the theater.
If you dared to take a peek at the scene in question, do you agree about the too-much-information issue? Should movie trailers try to be a bit more mysterious?
